Canada Summer Marketing Challenge (CSMC)
The CSMC is a marketing competition occurring during summer, typically during July and August. In 2020, the CSMC was hosted from June 25 - August 26. Each year, the focus of CSMC differs.
By competing in CSMC 2020, you will...
Launch, develop, and market a website on a niche of your choice
Gain the support of a knowledgeable mentor throughout the challenge
Complete a self-paced challenge (work to accommodate your schedules)
Walk away with key skills to add to your professional portfolio
Widen your network with new friends and valuable connections
Gain insight from real business executives, like a Vice President of Marketing and an Executive Director
Engage in interactive sessions about social media marketing, content strategies, and web design
